Discover the wonderland range

The following text is displayed on a Parks VIC information sign at the Sundial Carpark:

The majestic sandstone ridges of the Wonderland Range are over 430 million years old. Their leaning character and hard sandstone nature were formed after thick layers of sediments were intensely heated and folded and eventually thrust  up from under the earth.

After years of weather the Wonderland Range stands unique and inviting; it is a fantastic area to explore by foot. The diversity of spring wildflowers, wet weather waterfalls and rocky mountain peaks can be accessed from numerous walking tracks.
